Lake Erie Monster Imperial IPA Has Returned!

From the hoppy depths she rises... Lake Erie Monster Imperial IPA has returned with its monstrous reputation!

Lake Erie may be the shallowest of the Great Lakes, but the depth of our Imperial IPA is that of legends. Sweet peach and berry hop flavors swell beneath a wave of caramel malt, while a piney, bitter finish keeps this towering brew in check. It’s time to issue a small craft advisory because each sip is deliciously colossal.

ABOUT THE STYLE
A distinctly American style, Imperial IPAs are known for their pronounced hop flavor, aroma, and bitterness. Imperial IPAs generally have medium-high to high alcohol content and a heavier body, while maintaining drinkability. Think of a traditional American IPA, with even more emphasis on hops, and a greater all-around intensity.

ABOUT THE NAME
Named for South Bay Bessie, the legendary Lake Erie cryptid, Lake Erie Monster has a legend of its own. A longtime pub exclusive beer, our Imperial IPA quickly earned a cult following for its unprecedented hoppiness. Today we feed the beast whole leaf Simcoe hops in the whirlpool and hopback for a monstrous load of bitterness and aroma.
